Hey guys Celestes here,
I’m sorry for the rather sparely posts this week, but we all had to do with real life stuff. That’s why I stumbled around the topic of birthdays and I began to find the concept of birthday parties and songs utterly disturbing. I think this quote describes it best :
If you think about it, the process of singing the birthday song and cutting the cake is extremely satanic. No, but seriously imagine it this way: a small gathering of people huddle around an object on fire, chanting ritualistically a repetitive song in unison until the fire is blown out and a knife is stabbed into the object.

We celebrated my sister’s birthday today and next week we’re gonna celebrate Blue’s sweet 18th.
While preparing the gifts for both of them I got to think about the ritual or convention of giving gifts to the person for being born. Isn’t that like totally ridiculous? I mean it’s not like they took any part in it ( you know what I mean.. ) or that it was their accomplishment. Rather it was the mother’s hard work, giving birth to her child, but then having to give a present to her child for letting her go through the pain of giving birth. That’s somewhat stupid right?
Technically they’re praised and gifted for being there and existing. Yeah.. thinking about it makes the whole process really awkward. Still birthday parties are a hell of fun & I’m looking forward to celebrating Blue’s birthday next week.
